Webroot Secure Anywhere Complete
 · works on both PCs and Macs
· protects smartphones and tablets too (Android and iPhone/iPad)
My favorite thing about this software is that it is all-inclusive. It protects against viruses, sypware, malware AND it helps you clean your computer and back it up effortlessly. As if that wasn’t enough, you also receive protection across multiple platforms from your smartphone to your tablet to your Personal Computer! The license that I received is good for one year on 5 Devices for $79.99 That’s a great cost considering how many devices it covers. Theoretically, I can protect my PC, my iPhone, my kids phones and laptops all at the same time with one license. That makes updating and renewals pretty easy rather than a new renewal for each device!
I’ve been running the software for a little over three weeks now. I’m pleased to say that I’ve noticed smoother performance and really do feel like my computer is protected. I’m working on a regular Windows 7 based PC though Webroot is Windows 8 compatible (imagine that! Poor, poor Windows 8 has had a rough go of it coming into this world!!) Below are actual screenshots from my scans this morning. The only thing that I will disagree with in terms of the product’s claims is the time required to scan past the initial scan. As you can see from the screenshots, my complete scan took 10 minutes and 51 seconds. This is about 5-10 times longer than their claims. Perhaps I’ve just got a lot more “junk” to get through on my computer than most. That being said, I’m pleased with this product and intend to renew my subscription when it runs out in three-hundred-something days. At the very least, if you are in the market for a new anti-virus software, download Webroot’s Free Trial and give it a whirl. The product downloads and installs in record time (really) and doesn’t even require restarting your computer to get started.
